Miss Anna E. Law, for many years librarian at the Wilmette public library, died on January 10 [1934] at Springfield, Mo. Miss Law and her sister, Ida, were founders of the Woman's Reading Circle of Wilmette, which was afterwards the Wilmette Woman's club.
The Wilmette Free public library was organized on April 6, 1901, and was carried on in Jones hall until the donated Carnegie library building was completed and occupied in 1904. Anna Law was appointed librarian and continued to fill that office until her resignation on February 25, 1920.
She was preceded in death by her sister, Ida, and her brother, Frank Law. She is survived by one brother, Albert Law of Laurens, Mont., and by several nieces and nephews.
